Who is Polyco
The Polyolefin Recycling Company, trading as Polyco, is a not-for-profit industry body formed by the polyolefin converters themselves to promote the collection and recycling of post-consumer polyolefin packaging containers and other items.
Polyolefins is the collective term for the kinds of plastics that include polyethylene, namely low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP).
Polyco has already invested more than R22 million into various separation, collection, sorting and recycling projects around South Africa, in order to increase the recycling rate of polyolefin plastics. Take a look at some of the Polyco projects from the past few years.
